Before whale claw

Before whale claw

I 1925 came slipway to Petter Sørlle. Despite the fact that this made working up the whale easier in bad weather, it was still a dangerous job to get the whales up on deck. Whale Kloa did not come until the 1931/32, before this had two men lowered into the steeps and stick padded wire to the whale's tail so that the whales could be drawn up.

Kilen in Sandefjord 1913-14

Kilen in Sandefjord 1913-14

This is a panoramic image composed of two parts. Left half I got Øyvind Thuresson by photo archive at the Whaling Museum in Sandefjord to identify any ship. Right part I got sent off Svein Fager and from his postcard collection.
I so fast that it was taken from the same point and put these together in Photoshop. The whole scene gives a good impression of life on the harbor in Sandefjord early 1900s. Several whaling factory, catchers and sailing ships moored, and it is big business on the Framnæs.
Of the vessels I manage to identify, we have left, among others. two of the three combined catchers and factory ships “Become”, “Kit” and “Lloydsen”. Kokeriet “Norman” next to a factory ship I am unable to identify. Kokeriet “Thor I”. Kokeriet “Bombay”. “Fridtjof Nansen” (II) or “Eagle” completely inside the country. Right part of the subject I have not seen in sufficiently high resolution to be able to make sure the gray factory ship next “Norman” and cookery along country.
Year: 1913-14.
